Adidas Controversial Shoes

Jeremy Scott, the famous American fashion designer, just signed a new style of sneakers for Adidas.The sneakers weren't even available to the general public yet, they were already causing a big fight. TheAdidas Roundhouse Mid “Handcuffs” model feature a retro shape with orange plastichandcuffs that fasten around the ankles. There are some peoplewho think the shoesare offensive and are relating the handcuffs to shackles. That doesn't bring good memories fromthe slavery epoque. What do you think about it?Isit only a "funky"shoe or is it an offensiveone?

Adidas defend the designer:

The design of the JS Roundhouse Mid is nothing more than the designer Jeremy Scott’s outrageous and unique take on fashion and has nothing to do with slavery. Jeremy Scott is renowned as a designer whose style is quirky and lighthearted and his previous shoe designs for adidas Originals have, for example, included panda heads and Mickey Mouse. Any suggestion that this is linked to slavery is untruthful

They didn't decide if they will be selling the shoes:

Since the shoe debuted on our Facebook page ahead of its market release in August, Adidas has received both favorable and critical feedback. We apologize if people are offended by the design and we are withdrawing our plans to make them available in the marketplace.

A moda durante Ascot Royal 2012

Fashion at Ascot Royal 2012

Hats and fascinators are accessories that British ladies know how to wear the best. The accessory is most popular when the topic is royal gatherings, summer cocktails parties, weddings, or horseracing, a very popular sport in the Great Britain.

Talking about horseracing, this week a famous horserace called Royal Ascot is taking place in England in the small town of Ascot, Berkshire. It has taken place every year since 1711.
This big event is of course one of the biggest opportunities of the year for the British ladies to debut their recently purchased, perhaps even custom-made especially for the event, hats and fascinators. During the whole week long event, you can see the most different styles of hats and fascinators. Some very simple and others as extravagant a carnival costume.

After checking all these pictures, I am really thinking about to find a nice hat and take a flight to England next year to debut my piece.
Of course, that it is not so simple to participate in the event. For it you have to follow some fashion rules, like the ones described below.


Ladies Ladies are kindly reminded that formal day wear is a requirement in the Royal Enclosure, defined as follows:
· Dresses and skirts should be of modest length defined as falling just above the knee or longer;

· Dresses and tops should have straps of one inch or greater;

· Jackets and pashminas may be worn but dresses and tops underneath should still comply with the Royal Enclosure dress code;

· Trouser suits are welcome. They should be of full length and of matching material and colour;

· Hats should be worn; a headpiece which has a base of 4 inches (10cm) or more in diameter is acceptable as an alternative to a hat.

Evento - Summer StyleSwap by Trust in Tricia

Event - Summer Style Swap by Trust in Tricia
Recently, I attended the Event Swap Summer Style. It was a charitable event (I mentioned here before) organized by Tricia Cromwell and her team. The event was intended to benefit the Accelerated Cure Project. The swap took place at the beautiful Hotel Indigo in Newton, Massachuetts. The day seemed perfect for the outdoor event. However, we are talking about New England, and the weather suddenly changed at the end of the day. The rain changed the plans to party outdoors. But it was not enough to change the bright of the night, and the event was a great success. All the attendees were very pleased with the swap and also with the jewelry, clothing, and make-up exhibition, all of which brought together vendors like Fetysh shoes, Blues Jean Bar, CAbi, Mono Mono Boutique, Premiere Designs Jewelry, 31 Gifts and Mark.The big point of the night was the swap. The ladies were looking forward to seeing the doors opened. When finally the doors of the Hotel Indigo ballroom were opened, what we saw were tons of ladies running towards the hangers full of clothes and to tables of shoes and accessories. They tried to grab as many pieces as they could and choose what they like best. Among all the clothing and acessories were stunning pieces donated by Mrs. Massashusetts to the event. I also was participating and ended up finding two pairs of lovely shoes. Not that I don’t have enough shoes in my wardrobe (so my husband insists) but the more we have the more we want. It is the women’s way of living. :-)
